Wastes containing cyanide are required by both US EPA law 40 CFR pan 413 & 433.' and Ontario. Canada. 560/94 to be discharged below 1 ppm monthly. These levels may be decreased in the future. Therefore, it is best for an effective approach to be taken so that cyanide levels are discharged at the lowest level that is economically and technically feasible.
